Event Description Celebrate Independence Day with rum and a Revolutionary meal. In the late eighteenth century, the Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm was the country estate of Newburyport's most famous privateer, Captain Offin Boardman. The soaring rafters and massive beams of the 1775 barn are a perfect backdrop for an evening of historic fun. Join your friends around a rough farm table for traditional rum punch from Turkey Shore Distilleries and a hearty farm dinner while listening to true tales of prison breaks, piracy, and potato farming, all from the sizzling pages of Captain Boardman's diary.
